Try Wildebeest or Millimani Backpackers. Both they are close to City Center

Hi H

I have stayed at the Fairview twice and can recommend. As for getting around you can hire a driver from the hotel to get around. The traffic can been hellish at times.

The Fairview is not a hostel, it's a hotel.

Hi, you can also stay at Kenya Comfort hotel.Very central ,brilliant atmosphere and loads of travelers.Easy access to cabs outside the hostel and a decent bar.

You can stay at Jupiter Guest House, good value for money, relatively safe and in the heart of Westlands. Close to town, pubs and restaurants .

I stayed at the Meridian Court hotel.... I can't remember the exact rate but i was/am on a limitd budget and it was quite comfortable and affordable. Plus its pretty much right in the city centre for exploring and such.

Not the best advice but maybe will give you somewhere else to look
